OMEGA debuted its latest addition to the Speedmaster collection, the OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Stainless Steel.
Early last year, the Swiss watchmaker announced that its iconic Calibre 321 movement was making a comeback. Then, in July, OMEGA released a Moonwatch in platinum as its first offering of the movement’s return in time to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing. Now, the Moonwatch 321 Stainless Steel follows it with details that give a tip of the hat to the past, including the famous “Dot over Ninety” recognized by watch collectors all over the world.
With the inspiration from the Speedmaster ST 105.003 worn by astronaut Edward White (the first American to walk in space) in 1965, the new 39.70 timepiece has a bezel ring in polished black ceramic (ZrO2). The tachymeter scale is in white enamel.
On the step dial are classic OMEGA Moonwatch hands, small seconds sub-dial, 30-minute recorder and 12-hour recorder, and central chronograph hand. The vintage OMEGA logo is proudly and tastefully displayed throughout the watch.
The sapphire crystal caseback allows the 321’s to be viewed in all its splendor.
The Calibre 321 was the first movement used in the OMEGA Speedmaster back in 1957, a precursor to the Speedmaster ST 105.012, the first watch to be worn on the Moon.
